less kids messing with my gears of war experience online.

but realistically, this would ensure that the occurrence of becoming addicted to gaming and putting off school is somewhat minimized.

I think that like television it's best no to start your children on AVP movies so much as Sesame Street. There used to be a company called wrote kids games primarily. Unfortunately they were shut down.

No this is stupid. Parents should make that decision as well as what types of games their kids play. Of course there will be those who dont pay attention to what their kids are doing, but trying to do that job for
all parents is wrong and , lets face it, probably would never work anyway.

EDIT: Im not saying we should let 7 year olds play gears of war or anything though. But I dont think games are bad for kids that age or under.
